718 GTS vs 986 S


Really cool video to see the two driven directly back to back!

Lots of praise for the 986!

Really cool video. Do you guys know how they will compare with the new additions of GTS which Porsche announced in October that it's adding GTS models to Boxster and Cayman lines. Will there be much difference for a person if he wants to consider one? Should he wait for the new GTS models or go with existing?

That was one of the best Boxster YouTube videos that I have seen in a long time!

Perfect timing! I just test drove a 2017 718 Boxster S. It was stupid fast, but was boring to drive. PDK with Sport Chrono. Meh.

My 2004 986 is much more fun to drive. Slower, yes, but MUCH more fun.

I am Soooooooooooo happy I bought this 986.
